Support for FEMA Community Vaccination Center, Greenbelt Metro Station
FEMA has established a Type 2 Community Vaccination Center (CVC) at the Greenbelt Metro Station. (A Type 2 Center anticipates giving up to 3,000 shots per day.) FEMA has tasked Maryland VOAD to recruit and manage the volunteers needed for the site.
We anticipate the need of 30 volunteers per day, divided between two shifts. The CVC will be open 7 days per week for 8 weeks beginning April 6, 2021.

Prince George’s County Flooding Response
Maryland VOAD is presently responding in Prince George’s (PG) County to assist residents as they recover from the flooding that occurred on September 10, 2020.
Types of work to be completed:
- Replacing drywall
- Installing floor coverings
- Repairing retaining walls.
At present there is just over $10,000 in funding that is designated to support this response. We estimate that total costs for supplies (excluding the retaining walls) to be around $26,000 leaving a need of around $16,000 currently. More funds will be needed after the estimates for the retaining walls come in.
